Is Grace VanderWaal the “Next Taylor Swift”?
Though ‘America’s Got Talent’ is painfully packed with trite platitudes about how “miracles can happen,” and the disturbing exploitation of our country’s youth, every so often — there’s a gem I can’t ignore. Grace VanderWaal was called “the next Taylor Swift” by Simon Cowell, and that’s probably an understatement. Her tone is exceptionally unique, and I think Ed Sheeran would represent a closer comparison. Watch below as she sings an original song. Try not to vomit when you hear Howie Mandel’s predictable schmaltz-fest.
